Ernesto Reyes' SAOCO DC Rueda Dance Group

Rueda de Casino (commonly known as Salsa Rueda) is a Cuban Street dance originally done in the 50's in Cuba but became increasingly popular in the 90's in the U.S. Dance historians suggest that Rueda originated as a dance done primarily among poor, black Cubans who could not afford to belong to the social clubs (a.k.a. casinos) found in the cities. More affluent Cubans adopted the dance and moved the dance form into the social clubs where it became known as Rueda de Casino. The dance was seldom done outside of Cuba until the poorer African-Cubans (who continue to be the primary innovators of the dance) were able to migrate abroad. The emergence of Rueda outside of Cuba began in Miami but has now spread all over the U.S.

Rueda is composed of the same footwork done in Salsa but couples dance in a round (Rueda is Spanish for wheel). Couples initially assemble in a circle and the Rueda leader or "caller" yells out patterns. One of the unique features of Rueda is that couples perform synchronized patterns and change partners in response to the caller's instruction—much like what is done in square dancing- but funky, spicy and hot!
